“ Excellent Two Days! ”

We were a group of nine composed of three generations. My father and mother both in their seventies, myself, my wife, my sister, my sister-in law, and three kids aged 8, 6, and 5. Yukiko was able to plan the two days that was kept everyone interested and engaged the whole time! Working with Yukiko was a very easy and pleasant experience. The planning process was effortless. As first time visitors to Japan, she made sure she understood what we wanted out of the tour and gave her suggestions accordingly. Her responses were quick and she made an effort to answer all of our questions. Given that we had three young children with us, she made sure to include activities that would interest them. At the start of each day, she gave us an overview of the places we would visit and a brief explanation of each. She also took her time and explain the subway and train routes we would be taking to get to the different locations which was helpful in allowing us to navigate the city on our own. During the tour, she made sure that we had enough time to truly enjoy each place at a leisurely pace. Not one time we felt rushed. Given that my parents were with us, she was proactive in looking for elevators, escalators, and seating areas that helped them with all the walking that we needed to do. It really felt like we were touring Tokyo with a friend rather than with a tour guide. I think the best part of doing the tour with Yukiko is that she was great with the kids. Aside from the kid-centric activities she planned (The Ninja experience in Asakusa was a hit with the kiddos), it was the small things that she would do with the kids that impressed me. Armed with her art paper and paper folding skills, she would teach the kids origami during a long train ride or while waiting for the food to arrive during lunch. She even taught my Pokemon crazed son how to fold an origami Pikachu! Another thing that she did that the kids loved was the treasure hunt of the different locations inside Meiji shrine. That really kept the kids interested in seeing another shrine (we did four days in Kyoto before this tour and the kids were pretty much shrined and templed out at this stage). All in all, our experience with Yukiko was one of the best I had with a tour guide. It was a truly excellent experience and added to the enjoyment of our first trip to Japan.

YUKIKO:

Thank you so much for your excellent review, JM-san!! I can't find a better word to express my gratitude to your review of my tours. I was very happy that children had a great time with paper folding, treasure hunting and Ninjya activities. I hope what they experienced in Japan helps to broaden their horizons and expand their interests about Japan. I always welcome you back to Japan and see you again. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita !! Yukiko
